“I’d say he has a chance [of playing Sunday],” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said about Jackson’s availability after Friday’s practice. “It’s just one of those things where it’s an ankle sprain where if he starts feeling good and we’ll check him out prior to pregame … and we’ll see where we’re at. But if not, we’ve got Tyler [Huntley] and he’ll be ready to go also.”

In his four-year NFL career, Jackson has never missed a game because of injury, a streak that has never been more at risk than it is now. This was the first time Jackson had missed a week of practice because of an injury. He was unable to attend a walkthrough in Baltimore on Friday.

Backup QB Tyler Huntley is slated to start if Jackson is unable to play. He stepped in for Jackson in a dramatic Week 11 win over the Chicago Bears, his first career start. He also took over in the second quarter after Jackson was knocked out of Sunday’s loss to the Cleveland Browns after sustaining the ankle injury.
